Getting from Quote To Cash Without A Problem

The Quote to Cash process goes to the heart of every business operation – from quoting and contracting for product or service through to invoicing and receiving any monies owed.

It’s an essential “umbrella” process that extends across an organisation ultimately linking sales with finance and delivery. Naturally any issues along this process can have a serious impact on business performance, cash flow and risk.
